I would like to focus my work as a mixing engineer on projects I believe in. I would like to be inspired by my client's work and help them achieve what they have in mind. My goal would be to turn a great piece of music into a great sounding piece of music. I will make this happen by my extensive technical knowledge and my sense of creativity.
I'm a mixing and a recording engineer, I've achieved this status from a long series of studies. I've followed a 3 year engineering program in a private school in France, specialising in live sound. As I obtained this diploma I realised that I wanted to better myself and switch my expertise to the studio recording world. I left for Amsterdam and enrolled into the Abbey Road's Institute program where I studied everything I know today.
Even though I am the happiest and the most successful in a musical studio environment, I've done extensive work in commercial mixing and editing for the radio and the cinema. I still work for a lot of live performances and wish to continue to follow some bands, for I like the different vibe the live scene conveys.
I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
